Default SCX24 steering upgrades?

Why hasnít anyone come out with a metal steering kit for the Axial SCX24 yet? Seems like an obvious need since the stock steering is mega sloppy.

Is it that the SCX24 is new to the micro market? Iím just wondering since I picked one up and already Iím starting to see these areas needing upgrades.

While it isn't metal, I have been selling an upgraded steering linkage set on Shapeways for a while. It takes all the slop out, and it is more rigid than stock.

A few o-rings make a huge difference for a few cents.

I've got the steering upgrade, about to put it in as soon as the fat girl gets here. Got the 4 link servo mount as well. Looking forward to it, heard good things.

O-rings fix the slop, but won't stop the steering bar from flexing even in a mild bind.

Brass tube and rod ends are an easy and inexpensive fix
